It is time to put the winter doldrums behind us and step into spring. After your ritual spring cleaning, you may want to add some things to spice up your décor. Here are three great hacks to give your home that refreshing spring vibe:

Potted Plants

Nothing says springtime like green plants in your home. According to an article from healthline.com, indoor plants provide cleaner air and give your mood a boost. You can buy plants that are already growing from somewhere like Moon Valley Nurseries or start your own from seed and soil.

There are many colorful flowers that you can grow indoors. African violets, peace lilies, begonias, and orchids are some of the most popular, recommends thespruce.com. Choose your favorite plants and place them on windowsills and tables. With minimal care, your houseplants can beautify your home for several seasons.

Fresh Coat of Paint

If you are tired of the old interior color scheme, some new paint will brighten your mood. Many people choose neutral hues so it will blend with any décor. If you really want a pop of color, you can always use it for an accent wall.

Using designs is also a fun way to paint your walls. Try different widths of stripes or other geometric shapes. Costhelper.com estimates that the paint for a 12X12 room would only cost you around $25-$100 (depending on the brand you buy). In a weekend, you can have a room painted and ready for new decorations. If you decide you do not like a color, you can always paint over it later.

Brightly Colored Accessories

Crafting can come in handy when you want new accessories for your home. Bring a touch of spring to a room with new window treatments. With a few basic sewing skills, you can easily make colorful toppers. Bright ginghams, calicos, and checks are classical designs for curtains. The same design can be used for table clothes or napkins.

It is simple to breathe new life into your furniture with some homemade throw pillows. Choose accent colors for your room and make several in different sizes for interest and texture. If you knit or crochet, you can craft pretty covers for the couch or love seat.

You do not have to break the bank to decorate your house for spring. You can rearrange your furniture, add some plants, and bring in some of your favorite crafting projects. If you get the whole family involved, you can spend quality time and make your home beautiful for the season.
